Although it is possible to experience ringing in all ages, it is more common among elderly people. All disturbing noises in the ears are summarized as ringing or tinnitus.
You can find the answers to the questions “What can be done? Isn’t there any way to prevent it? Why does it happen?” here in this gallery.
1 – What is Ringing in the Ears?
- Noises like buzzing, humming, throbbing, clinking etc. in the ears.
- Patients may hear them in just one or both ears or even in whole head.
- The more silent the environment is, the louder the ringing gets.
- In elderly people, it comes with hearing loss.
- In teenagers and young adults, the cause is most probably wisdom teeth.
- In some cases it can be unbearable.
2 – The Causes
The reasons include ear infections, otosclerosis and brain disorders but all of them are very rare. Mostly, the cause cannot be identified but Gokmen Approach points the following conditions as causes:
- Wisdom teeth and clenching in young,
- Imbalanced prosthetics and teeth alignment problems in elderly.
3 – Why Does It Happen?
Why does the ringing occurs?
- Infections, vascular problems and tumors in the ears or the brain,
- Interference fields around the ear,
- Wisdom teeth trying to come up in young may cause ringing in the ears,
- Also, imbalanced prosthetics and missing teeth cause problems in temporomandibular joint and create negative stimulations in elderly.
4 – How Does It Go Away?
How does ringing go away?
- It comes in attacks and usually goes away by itself, then comes again in time.
- It can be treated by focusing on the cause. Unless the problems in temporomandibular joint and wisdom teeth are solved; it continues increasingly, let alone going away.
5 – Treatment of Ringing in the Ears, Tinnitus
Although they say that you have to get used to it, you don’t. It can very well be treated.
Gokmen Approach treats tinnitus in 3 stages:
- Identifying interference fields and applying neural therapy.

- Practices intended to prevent clenching and correcting malocclusion.
